I’m back! My apologies for the unannounced hiatus; I have taken some much needed time off to deal with personal matters and am happy to be “back” and posting again. :)
Let’s start this afternoon’s post with this gem from my mother:
40 years of marriage
A married couple in their early 60s was celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant. Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table. She said, ‘For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish.’
The wife answered, ‘Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband The fairy waved her magic wand and – poof! – two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands.
The husband thought for a moment: ‘Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. I’m sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me.’
The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish. So the fairy waved her magic wand and poof! … the husband became 92 years old.
The moral of this story: Men who are ungrateful should remember fairies are female.

This has to be one of the best singles ads ever printed. It is reported to have been listed in the Atlanta Journal.
Single black female seeks male companionship, ethnicity unimportant. I’m a very good girl who LOVES to play. I love long walks in the woods, riding in your pickup truck, hunting, camping and fishing trips, cozy winter nights lying by the fire. Candlelight dinners will have me eating out of your hand. I’ll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me… Call (404) 875-6420 and ask for Annie, I’ll be waiting.
Over 150 men found themselves talking to the Atlanta Humane Society.
The Wizard of Oz is 70 years old. Today, if Dorothy were to encounter men with no brains, no hearts, and no balls, she wouldn’t be in Oz.
She’d be in Congress!
Keep ’em coming, y’all! :)
